The Port Huron Fire Department recently declared that a fire at the Exhibit Dispensary & Lounge, located at 1033 River St., occurred accidentally. According to a press release issued on Monday by the department, the fire was sparked by improperly discarded smoking materials in a trash receptacle.

Fire Chief Corey Nicholson identified the cause more specifically as a discarded cigarette. He confirmed that there was no marijuana present in the establishment at the time of the incident. This clarification comes as the Exhibit Dispensary & Lounge was gearing up to become one of the first venues in Port Huron to sell recreational marijuana.

The fire broke out on November 26th, just ahead of the dispensary's anticipated opening. The timely response of the Port Huron firefighters was crucial in saving the structure from more severe damage. However, Lieutenant Matthew Oleaga of the Port Huron Fire Department noted that the building sustained smoke damage. Fortunately, there were no injuries reported as a result of the fire.

Mark Aubrey, who operates Exhibit Cannabis, had previously expressed intentions to inaugurate the business by year's end. As of now, Aubrey has not publicly commented on the potential impact of the fire on the dispensary's opening schedule.
